After NetJets president Patrick Gallagher wrote in late April, “This pandemic is affecting our business to a greater extent than any event since we were founded in May 1964.”

He recently said May was its best month for new customer acquisitions since 2007.

And they just decide to add 60 private jets through 2021

Mr Gallagher announced, “With a steady increase in flight activity and a promising outlook for growth, we are pleased to inform you that NetJets has decided to reinstate most of the fleet in Europe that was previously planned for disposal. Additionally, we plan to add more than 60 additional aircraft across our worldwide fleet between now and year-end 2021.”

“These decisions were made amid unparalleled economic uncertainty, when it was unclear how long the period of restricted international flying would last and how the pandemic would impact the broader economy. We sought to insulate our company from deeper reductions later and avoid the need for any bailout while continuing to provide exceptional safety and service to you, our owners.”

We hope that it will spread to others business aviation operators, Flight Level 470 - FL470 is ready anytime to assist you to find trust-worthy crew.
